Dear Biopython developers,

I am volunteering to give a software demonstration of Biopython at the 
International Conference on Genome Informatics (GIW) in Tokyo/Yokohama 
this December. GIW is the largest annual conference on bioinformatics in 
Asia: see http://giw.ims.u-tokyo.ac.jp/giw2003 for more information.
The software demonstrations are set up like a poster session (instead of 
an oral presentation such as at BOSC), allowing easy communication with 
potential users. Such a software demonstration comes with a two-page 
paper describing the software. This paper is not medline-indexed and 
there is no rigorous refereeing involved for such short papers. However, 
it appears together with the full-length papers in the proceedings, so 
there will be a permanent record. The proceedings will be publicly 
available on the web after the conference. 
(http://www.jsbi.org/journal/GIW02/GIW02SS05.pdf is the paper for the 
software demonstration by our Bioruby colleagues last year at GIW).

The deadline for submissions has already passed, however since my lab is 
organizing this conference we have some leeway. I'll be happy to write 
the paper, but I will need some help:
1) Are there any other papers on Biopython from which I can plagiarize 
the parts of Biopython that I am not very familiar with?
2) Would somebody be willing to have a look at the paper before I submit 
it, in case I write something wrong?
3) Who should I include as co-authors? Anybody is welcome, as far as I 
am concerned.
4) Does anybody have any cool scripts that make use of Biopython that I 
can show off at the conference?

Thanks in advance,

--Michiel, U Tokyo.
